Headword: Ἐπιστομιεῖν
Adler number: epsilon,2634
Translated headword: to be about to curb
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] to hinder, to restrain.
Greek Original:
Ἐπιστομιεῖν: ἐμποδίσαι, κατασχεῖν.
Note:
The headword is a future infinitive of ἐπιστομίζω (cf. epsilon 2635) but glossed by aorist infinitives. Of its several occurrences, the one which has generated the present entry is doubtless the one in [Demosthenes] 7.33 (web address 1) -- generally taken to be the work of Hegesippus (eta 57).
